Baby Sussex hasn’t arrived yet, but Meghan Markle is already planning her workload once she returns from maternity leave.
Vanity Fair is reporting that a palace insider has said the Duchess of Sussex will be at the annual summit for One Young World in London this October.
The summit will host 2000 global youth leaders from 190 nations, an event she has attended in the past.
In 2014, Markle acted as a counsellor for the summit. Then in 2014 in Dublin and 2016 in Ottawa Markle addressed the delegates.
“Harry is keen to support Meghan in developing her own role and the opportunity to partner with a cause so close to her heart is an ideal stepping stone. All being well with the baby, the timing is perfect for her to expand her Commonwealth work through this new One Young World partnership with the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust,” the source said.
One Young World has recently partnered with the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, which Prince Harry and Markle are president and vice-president of, to help bring youth from across the Commonwealth to the summit through a scholarship fund.
A statement from the charity read, “One Young World, the global forum for young leaders, is delighted to be partnering with the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust to bring young leaders from across the Commonwealth to London for our tenth Summit. Bringing the young leaders of the Commonwealth together at One Young World will give them the opportunity to accelerate change in their communities.”
Some of 2019’s confirmed counsellors include singer Bob Geldof, influencer Mama Bee and Nobel Peace Laureate Prof. Muhammad Yunus.
